's behaving... which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> 2:30 left in the trading day. here is what happened to the dow, the manufacturing report out this morning, disappointed bs back below 50, meaning we're in contraction territory, even when the republicans announced their counterproposal on the fiscal cliff. no real movement there. a couple zigs and zags but we're going out on the low end, about 50 point. we'll quickly show you the charts of the dow, the s&p and the nasdaq, going back for the full year. we're back above the 200-day moving average in all three cases. it's the closest for the dow. we're right at the long-term trend line there. let me show you. i think the s&p is next here. the s&p and the nasdaq are well above their 200-day moving average. move it along, yes. again, these are not precise but you can see it's moving well above that. this is the nasdaq. and the s&p is well above its 200-day moving average. there you are. it's the strongest of those three percentagewise. warren, democrat is typically a pretty good month for equities.

isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> about three minutes left. again, the major averages, we haven't seen a lot of volatility today. the markets really taking in stride the lack of progress in the fiscal cliff negotiations because there are no negotiations right now. here's the dow today. a little volatility in the open today, essentially sideways. there are other markets that have moved today that i want to show you. the yield on the ten-year went down today. part of operation twist to keep rates low on the long end of the yield curve. we're down to 1.60%. other traders were in there buying treasuries following on the fed's coat tails. another market moving right now, gold. back below $1700 an ounce. this happened last december as well when there was some profit taking at that time, maybe to try and beat out the tax consequences. we're down 1.4%, a decline of $23. we'll watch that carefully to see if now we're below this psychologically important level. the vix, the fear indicator, went higher today. we're still below considered yellow flag territory.

, no matter how wily... or weird... or wonderfully the market's behaving... which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> about four minutes left. another one of those days where it was clear that wall street is fixated on washington and what's going on with the fiscal cliff talks. they were still public today. here's where the president started speaking to the business round table and where we learned also that those 40 republicans part of this bipartisan group that would be open to new ideas on the fiscal cliff talks. of the dow, the best performers and worst performers today, the full-ti financials higher led by bank of america. nasdaq, we need to highlight this, was lower, down 20 points today. why? because of apple. apple had one of its worst days. we highlighted this earlier. something very archean called the death cross, the 50-day moving average crossed below the 200-day moving average. what does that mean? just means it could be going lower from here. down 6% on apple today. the yield of the ten-year went lower. as they were buying stocks, they were a

to his last, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> about 90 seconds left. going off the highs of the session. we pointed this out earlier. the french and german stock markets today closed at 52-week highs. look at that. highest they've been all year. our market, not the same. the dow is below the highs that were set back in september. i want to ask michael shay what's holding us back, fiscal cliff or what? >> at this point, we're finally all fiscal cliff. the last two or three weeks has been fiscal cliff. >> would we be higher if we zrpt that distraction? >> i think absolutely. the equity markets would be. i think the bonds market is still pricing in a lot of stress over in europe. that's why you're getting a little bit of this divergence. we talked about this earlier. if you look where sectors are trading right now, after we got the bounce on the 19th, there are several sectors doing far better than where they were on election. >> that's true. you know what? we've been so focused on the fiscal cliff, we haven't thought about the jobs number coming ou
